We're Move In Ready - Are You?

The Berkshire Model at Brambleton


When it comes to housing, what’s better than being able to move in on your own time, when you’re ready? If you’re currently searching for your first home or looking to up size or even downsize, consider a move-in ready home.


Depending on how quickly you need to move and how much your budget will allow, a move-in ready home may be exactly the right fit for you and your family.  Here are just a few of the many advantages available to buyers that are ready to call a new house, home:


Fixed Move-In Date

Determine your move-in date with confidence. Working with a builder allows you to set your move-in date more reliably than buying from a previous owner. Builders are also more likely to want you in the home as soon as possible and often provide attractive financial incentives if you work with their timetable.


Guaranteed Warranties

New homes come with warranties, sometimes lasting up to 10 years or more. For example, after purchasing a home, Van Metre provides a Customer Care Advocate that works alongside homeowners to mitigate concerns and resolve issues during and beyond their warranty period. While existing homes come with their own appeal, they usually don’t come with guarantees or warranties causing homeowners to spend large upfront costs.


Low Maintenance

Everything’s new and designed to work together, including costly components like the furnace, water heater, air conditioning, heating system and roof. Even better, doors, walls, appliances, windows and insulation are more energy efficient and often exceed current building codes. It’s also common for builders to give new homeowners an allowance to make personalized selections such as appliances, window treatments and styles, sometimes even letting you determine the location of specific rooms in your new home. Don’t need a home office but want a rec room? Builders can often convert planned spaces to suit your needs using their own design centers or remodeling services, like the  Van Metre Design Centre or Design+Build.

When looking for a home, determine ahead of time what's most important to you and your family, and search for those specific items—first online, then in person. After all, move-in ready homes are ready when you are. Ready to move? See all Move In Ready homes, here.
